Anxiety and panic attacks are not signs of weakness !


A young man contacted me via facebook this evening asking me to write the following on my blog and on my wall on facebook.

Stigma Research and Action.

Anxiety and panic attacks are not a sign of weakness. They are signs of having tried to remain strong for too long”.

“It’s mental awareness week,” he told me “so this is the right time to talk about these issues. One in three people will go through what I went through some time in their lives..” He added; “Know that you are  not alone.”

When I read what he had written to me, I had tears in my eyes.
